We are hiring for a full-time assistant to the owner of the company. Internships certainly help but do not qualify as experience unless it was full-time.

Ideal candidate will have one to two years full-time work assistant experience in a related field (i.e. publishing, media, entertainment). He/She will be highly organized, career-minded, with strong written and verbal communication skills. Being flexible, having a good sense of humor, and an old-fashioned work ethic are highly valued. Critical reading skills with an interest in contemporary writing (narrative non-fiction, literary fiction, business/economics, cultural criticism) are important. (This is not for those who prefer reading classics, poetry...). Tech literacy a plus.

Responsibilities include: tracking submissions, contracts, and money; managing high volume of calls and emails, working with service providers (tech, accounting, etc); reading and providing editorial coverage for client work and incoming submissions (including manuscripts, proposals, tv and feature scripts); liaising with the rest of the office staff in the managing of the office.

One year full-time experience as an assistant (does not have to be publishing) is a must.

Include cover letter with resume, outlining your work experience and any personal interests that you'd like us to know about. We like well-rounded people!

We will only be able to respond to people's whose skill sets and experience match the requirements. If you don't hear from us within ten days, you can assume it wasn't the right fit.

Thank you!
